At this point in 2020 we have learned that flexibility is key and absolutely nothing is set in stone. We are all dealing with a level of anxiety about the future and have many unanswered questions. However, one thing is for certain during this time of uncertainty.... Ag Education is the BEST. CAREER. EVER!


Ag Education for ALL!

Agricultural Education for All is a joint partnership of the National Association of Agricultural Educators and the National FFA Organization with the goal of ensuring all in agricultural education feel welcome, safe and celebrated as their authentic selves. Every month in Teach Ag Times we will feature some of the outstanding teachers making a difference and creating inclusive, diverse and equitable programs for their students. 

This month, we would like to introduce you to Riley Hintzsche, agriculture teacher at Streator Township High School, in Streator, Illinois. Riley has worked tirelessly to create a classroom environment where all of his students feel comfortable to be their true and authentic selves. 


Words of Encouragement

Is there an ag teacher in your life who has inspired you? Make sure to tell them THANK YOU for all they have done for you, your classmates, and your community!


"College is hard, but it is also rewarding – if you do it correctly."
